Cafe I'm Here/ I'm Here Cafe- Korean Chill Hub at CTTM Bldg. Timog

I'm excited to share this new Korean cafe we discovered in Tomas Morato/ Timog recently. After our dinner at Vagabonds Artisan Comfort Food, D brought me to Cafe I'm Here at the 3rd floor of CTTM Bldg. just across the Boy Scout Circle in Timog. I barely saw the signage of the cafe and it is quite easy to miss if you are just passing by.

Cafe I'm Here is located at the 3rd floor of the building just above where Centerstage KTV used to be. The place is exceptionally huge and spacious for a typical cafe. It was love at first sight!

Cafe I'm Here is a Korean cafe with a double-deck seating concept wherein people can enjoy private seating in their own cubicle.

Customers can choose any area where they want to stay. They can stay in the lower area with wooden dividers and string curtains, or on the upper deck cubicles that reminds me of children's cribs and playpens.

There are tables for small groups..

and there are tables for big groups..

There is an area for solo customers or students who want to study privately or work on their computers. And they also have bigger tables to accommodate bigger groups.

One of the sought-after seats is the one and only camping tent just below the stairs.

We settled in one of the cubicles on the upper deck. Footwear should be removed when going up or inside the cubicles, which is understandable to maintain the cleanliness of the floors and dining area.

Cafe I'm Here provides free post-its which you can freely stick to the walls, windows, and ceilings. I personally find this concept better and cleaner-looking than vandalizing on the walls and floors.

Garlic Cheese Bread (P170)

This is probably the only savory find in Cafe I'm Here's menu aside from the Bread Pocket which is always not available. The bread was just an ordinary toast that is 2 1/2" thick and topped with melted garlic cheese.

JavaChip Mocha Frappe (P180)

This is D's favorite drink at Cafe I'm Here. It is sweet and chocolate-y just the way he like it.

Mango Smoothie (P150)

I was in the mood for something fruity and refreshing so I opted for a drink from their smoothie variants. The Mango Smoothie reminds me of the mango puree juice concentrate you can buy in groceries. They just blended it with ice to make it thick and slushy.

Chocolate Cookie Frappe (P180)

The chocolate cookie frappe is a coffee-based drink blended with chocolate cookies. It was ok, but D liked the JavaChip Mocha Frappe better. 

Strawberry Cheesecake (P190)

This cheesecake looked really good from the chiller, but it was a complete disappointment. I initially thought the cheesecake itself would taste like strawberry given its color. Turned out, it was just food color. D said it feels like he's eating clay. The cheesecake was not too sweet and the texture was a bit off. I should have chosen the Red Velvet or Dark Chocolate Cake instead.

Cafe I'm Here Menu:

Overall, we will definitely go back to Cafe I'm Here again. In fact, we already visited twice in a month's time. What I love most about the Cafe I'm Here is that you get to have your own personal space. The place is very spacious and clean. You can just do anything you want in here to pass the time. You can take a nap, study solo, read a book, meetup with friends, watch a movie from your laptop, charge your phones, do homework, blog, etc. Just make sure you order something from the cafe. Prices are relatively more expensive because customers tend to stay longer and customer turnover is low. Food and drinks are so-so, so I hope they could improve on it and offer more dishes and snacks soon. I also hope they can maintain the cleanliness of the cubicles, floors, pillows and bean bags.
